But, maybe there just isn't anyone who:

1) have not previously been to an ARIN meeting
2) is an individual, or an employee of a company that otherwise wouldn't
   be able to afford the travel expenses otherwise
3) is actively involved.

As far as I can tell, you'd have to be a relatively young person (<35)
such that you'd not worked anywhere during the .com boom days, and you'd
have to be working for a small company.   While in 1990, when I started
building ISPs, everyone doing so was ~23... I don't think that there are
many people starting new ISPs today.

I'll forward your message to some people.
